Today I’m delighted to participate in the blog tour for Robin Bielman’s latest romance The Wedding Crasher and The Cowboy.
Title: The Wedding Crasher & The Cowboy
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Kennedy Martin is shocked when her ex calls days before his wedding, expressing serious second thoughts. Doesn’t he see his fiancée’s actually the glaze to his doughnut? Now she’s got no choice but to crash his wedding and convince the man he’s with the right woman.
Instead, she crashes into the absolute last man she ever wanted to see: Maverick Owens, her old college nemesis. Maverick is still as awful, infuriating, and just The Worst as ever—even if he looks way too sexy in his cowboy hat. And of course he’s convinced she’s actually at the seaside ranch to ruin the wedding.
Now the only way to get some face time with the groom and save this marriage is to participate in all sorts of pre-wedding events…with Maverick. Stuck on a canoe, making small-talk at cocktail hour, and even a hoedown with her worst enemy? This just might be the longest week of her life…

Just admire this lovely cover for a moment. So full of sunshine and hope- this is exactly what this book is like.
Kennedy Martin is the kind of person who never loses her calm-at least at work and she’d better not to, as she is an ER doctor. She’s a person who will listen to you attentively and genuinely care about what you’re saying, ready to step in and help if necessary. So when her ex-boyfriend Reed, not the latest ex (you’ll just have to read the book to find out what that one did), calls her out of blue during his bachelor party and confesses he isn’t sure he wants to get married, For the sake of their friendship, she needs to help him.
There’s only one snag- Kennedy wasn’t invited to the wedding, which means she needs to crash the wedding to talk to him to make sure he’s making the right decision. Whatever it will be. And if the event happens to take place on a ranch which belongs to her old college rival/archinemesis Maverick Owen’s family, so be it. Nothing will stop this five feet tall, stubborn woman from ensuring her friend’s future marital bliss. But as there’s still a whole week before Reed’s nuptials, there’s plenty of time to find out why were Maverick and Kennedy trying to outdo each other at the pre-med school, what happened to them afterwards. There’s plenty of time to fall in love (again) and maybe even have your heart broken. Or mended.
Once again, I want to praise the author who chooses a good guy as her protagonist. Romance books are full of ‘flawed, but so charming’ playboys-makes life interesting, right? wrong! makes life full of stress and anxiety. Give me Maverick any day! He’s the proverbial good man who is so hard to find.
I adored Kennedy and her insatiable thirst for knowledge about everything and everyone around her. She’s sweet, hard-working, optimistic and likeable. Just maybe not as funny as her BFF Andrew with his jokes and improvised stories that kept poor Kennedy on her toes.
There were several moments in this book where I just couldn’t help tearing up, but overall, There’s more emotion in this book than carefree banter and it felt right. Sometimes this is exactly what you need- a sweet story of finding love when you are ready for it and not taking anything for granted, but taking care of people you love here and now.
